Ruud Janssen may be the best event thinker and conceptualizer I know. He’s very creative and still very impact-oriented.

My colleagues and I always enjoy working with him because he gets the best out of us, challenges us to think bigger and provides a framework for how to do that.

With his guidance we planned and implemented and never-before attempted hybrid event that succeeded beyond our and our CEO’s expectations.

Ruud can help you blaze a new trail or just improve what you already do. He’s probably the best consultant hire I ever made.

I had a chance to work with Ruud on several projects involving the strategy of our Federation and the quality improvement of our events.

I really appreciated Ruud’s innovative ideas, his professionalism and knowledge of the association world.

I liked his way of thinking outside the box and his very friendly personality. I really enjoyed working with him and would recommend him with no hesitation.

In an ever faster changing business environment/community, we will certainly continue to work together as Ruud brings insights from different backgrounds, organisations he has worked for, and from the countries & cultures he has lived and worked in across the globe. Not to forget to mention his creativity and ability to deliver on time and on budget. Top multi lingual professional with “Can-Do” mentality.
